Fantastic Mr Fox comes to Doncaster

Mr Fox and his Family take on the farmers in this classic Roald Dahl tale opening on Saturday April 16 at Doncaster Little Theatre. Our Easter Family show is always special and this year it’s extra special as we are using a combination of animation, film and live actors to tell the story.

Film maker and animator Lara Marsden has worked with director Angela Wren to design and produce original animations and film sequences to tell this wonderful story.

Fantastic Mr Fox, is a simple story of goodies against baddies, the perfect Easter treat for all the family. With music and slapstick, some special effects and animation, it’s exciting and funny... and a little bit scary!

Is it Disney? Quite definitely not! It’s a combination of two-dimensional cartooned images and moving sequences with the actors providing the third dimension. All of the work on the film and animation is original and will be seen for the first time at Doncaster Little Theatre.

The show opens on Saturday April 16, with two shows at 1pm and 5pm, so little ones aren’t too late to bed, and then from Tuesday 19 to Friday 22 at 7pm, and then two shows at 1pm and 5pm on Saturday April 23.

With family tickets at just £24, it’s an Easter treat that won’t break the bank. Contact the Box office on (01302) 340422 or book online at
